I was so pleased with my stay at the Herbert. My reservation was moved from their sister hotel because of repairs. I found this property more that I expected. It was safe, convenient, friendly, efficient and comfortable, especially the bed!. Because of the change in location I was upgraded to two rooms for the price of one. I was shocked. Of course there were homeless people in the area. It is the middle of the city. If you want to be sheltered from reality, stay in the suburbs or maybe stay home.
